Frosty & More

Hello everyone! If you are looking for the Blog Candy post, please go down several posts.

It sure feels frosty here in New Jersey today!  We are expecting an inch of snow this afternoon.  I know it's not much, but it might be a white Christmas after all!

Isn't he cute?  The snowman is from the Stampin' Up! Snow Buddies set, and I drew in the horizon line with a black SU marker.  The accessories he wears were colored with SU markers, as well.  The ground is covered with sparkly "snow" (Martha Stewart glitter), as is one side of his face and body.  The wreath surrounding him was assembled using a Martha punch called Rose Leaf.  It's a new toy and I love it!   Also new to me:  the Maraschino twine from The Twinery.  I picked up two of their sample packs on Cyber Monday at a discount.
